A wet, windy and cold start to October was quite disappointing for many local anglers.
All predictions have been thrown out the window with the water not warming up enough to stimulate some of the expected fishing action.
The recent cold snap has put the brakes on the action that was getting better at the start of October, however it won’t stay cold for much longer.
As a result we can expect to see the yellowbelly finaly get their act into gear and start belting angler’s lures and baits.
In spite of this there has still been some nice fish caught with young tally boy Kaleb Oxley landing two nice yellowbelly measuring in at 50cm and 54cms respectively.
Keen local angler Dave Landmeter managed to land his second monster so far. This last catch measured in at 108cm which is a great result for Dave and shows the quality of fish lurking around waiting for warmer weather.
I haven’t fished Kialla much lately but every time I drive past I see plenty of anglers fishing this great waterway. There has been plenty of young anglers as well which is great to see. Just remember with the lake move around if you have not had a bite or hit.
It only seems like yesterday when I was talking about last years Cod Classic, but its here again. The 10th birthday of the biggest fishing competition in the known universe!
If you are looking for a great fishing a social weekend for cod opening get to Mulwala.
Tony Bennett runs a fantastic event and it always goes smoothly from an entrants prospective.
